Brett Lorenzo Favre (born October 10, 1969) is a retired American football player who played Quarterback. He was the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers from 1992 to 2007. Favre started at the quarterback position for The University of Southern Mississippi for four years before being selected in the second round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons (33rd overall). After one season with the Falcons, Favre was traded to the Packers on February 10, 1992 for the 19th pick in the 1992 NFL Draft. He became the Packers' starting quarterback in the fourth game of the 1992 NFL season with the Packers, starting every game from then on until his retirement in 2008. Later in 2008, Favre came out of retirement and was traded to the New York Jets.
